résistance à la compression pendant 28 jours de cube de béton


Explanation:
Juste un essai !

Termium / * Résistance des matériaux
* Matières plastiques
* Mise en place du béton
* Combustibles fossiles solides (Généralités) :

compression strength Source, fiche 2, compression strength
CORRECT

compressive strength Source, fiche 2, compressive strength
CORRECT

resistance to compression Source, fiche 2, resistance to compression
vertical compression strength Source, fiche 2, vertical compression strength
top load strength Source, fiche 2, top load strength

résistance à la compression Source, fiche 2, résistance à la compression
CORRECT, FÉM

résistance en compression Source, fiche 2, résistance en compression
CORRECT, FÉM

résistance à la rupture en compression Source, fiche 2, résistance à la rupture en compression
CORRECT, FÉM

DEF – The degree of resistance of a material to force acting along one of its axes in a manner tending to crush it. Source, fiche 2, Défintion 1 - compression strength

DEF – In the case of briquettes formed in a plunger press, the maximum test pressure at the working face of a test plunger before a briquette sample is crushed, under standardized conditions. Source, fiche 2, Défintion 2 - compression strength

CONT – Test for compressive strength of plastics. Compressive strength (lbf/in² or kfg/cm²) = load (lbf or kgf)/a.b (in² or cm²). Standard test methods: ASTM D795, BS 2782 method 303, ISO R604. Source, fiche 2, Contexte 1 - compression strength

EX – The result ... of impregnating ordinary concrete with a liquid organic monomer ... is greatly increased tension and compression strength ... accompanied by ... improved impermeability, hardness and durability. Source, fiche 2, Exemple d’utilisation 1 - compression strength

OBS – compressive strength: ... usually expressed in pounds of force per square inch (psi) of surface affected. Source, fiche 2, Observation 1 - compression strength

DEF – Résistance d'un matériau à une force exercée perpendiculairement à sa surface, ou à une force appliquée de façon à l'écraser dans le sens de sa longueur (éprouvette normalisée de béton, échantillon de bois, de pierre, etc.); les essais permettent de mesurer la limite d'élasticité, et sont poursuivis jusqu'à la rupture effective du matériau par écrasement. Source, fiche 2, Défintion 1 - résistance à la compression

DEF – Quotient de la charge maximale enregistrée lors de la compression d'une éprouvette par la section initiale de cette éprouvette. Source, fiche 2, Défintion 2 - résistance à la compression

DEF – (Pour les agglomérés fabriqués à la presse à plongeur.) Pression d'essai maximale rapportée à la surface utile d'un plongeur d'essai pour laquelle la cassure d'un échantillon d'aggloméré se produit dans des conditions déterminées. Source, fiche 2, Défintion 3 - résistance à la compression

EX – La résistance du béton à la traction est faible, environ 1/12 de sa résistance à la compression. Aussi néglige-t-on toujours cette résistance dans le calcul des pièces en béton armé. Source, fiche 2, Exemple d’utilisation 1 - résistance à la compression

EX – [...] le béton traditionnel est caractérisé [...] par sa résistance à la rupture en compression. Source, fiche 2, Exemple d’utilisation 2 - résistance à la compression

disagree  Tony M: 'fraid not, Arnold! This is not about testing it for 28 days, it's all about testing it after it has been cured for 28 days, since concrete strength increases with curing time.

cube compression strength
résistance à la compression sur cube


Explanation:
Seems to be a very widely used term; note that some writers omit 'la'.

I suggest you try a bit of Googling to see if the sources found are authoritative enough for you — they certainly seemed it to me, though I haven't investigated further...

I really just wanted to highlight that the key term appears to be 'sur cube', and all the other details (curing time, size of cube, etc.) need to be hung onto that basic framework, I think...
